At the mining town of Tranent Carrick executed a sandstone cross in a style common in East Lothian. As at Monzievard & Strowan the Pelican is used as a symbol of sacrifice.
Above - A dialogue of sculptures. The modern sculpture by David Annand commemorates Jackie (Joan) Crookston who was shot dead by soldiers while leading a protest against the military conscription of townsmen in 1797. After the shooting Dragoons pursued fleeing protestors in what became known as 'The Massacre of Tranent'. Just over a century later in 1916 Military Conscription was again reintroduced by the British government and some of those listed on Carrick's memorial would certainly have been conscripts.
